ORAPEX, one of only a few annual national-level stamp shows in Canada, is part of the American Philatelic Society's "World Series of Philately." This year marks the 59th anniversary of the show, which is managed by volunteers drawn from the RA Stamp Club, the Amicale des philatélistes de l'Outaouais, the Ottawa Philatelic Society, and related philatelic societies and organizations.

For the 2020 show, the theme is “Topicals, Thematics and Illustrated Mail.” There will be as many as 125 competitive frames of exhibits along with non-competitive exhibits, local club-sponsored frames and a special “Youth Booth” for young collectors.

Each year ORAPEX also honours a philatelist who has made a significant contribution to the hobby. The show honouree for 2020 will be Larry Davidson of Stratford Ontario, whose exhibit “Beavers: Nature’s Engineers” received the grand award at NTSS 2015 and which will be shown at the exhibition in the Court of Honour.

ORAPEX boasts about 40 stamp dealers in its bourse and features many society and study group meetings. The show's awards reception is on Saturday after the show closes.
